Festival takes over campus




Preparation is underway on the UA Mall for the Tucson Festival of Books’ sixth consecutive year. Chris Kopach, assistant vice president of Facilities Management at the UA, has overseen the planning for this festival. According to Kopach, planning for the next year’s festival begins one month after the conclusion of the prior festival. Setup for the 2014 Tucson Festival of Books began on Saturday, despite the rain. Kopach said there is a systematic way to set up the Mall for the festival. Setup starts from the east side of the Mall near Campbell Avenue and works its way down the length of the Mall. More than 300 exhibitors and 450 authors will be

well as classrooms in the Modern Languages building, the Education building, the Kuiper Space Sciences Building and the Flandrau Science Center and Planetarium, Kopach said. Several rooms in the Student Union Memorial

Center will also be utilized. Kopach said the planning committee has had meetings since the beginning of the year to prepare for the festival, and that the preparation for this festival could not be done without the help





ASUA hopefuls talk issues BY ETHAN MCSWEENEY The Daily Wildcat

With the polls opening for primary elections on Tuesday, the three candidates for president of the Associated Students of the University of Arizona sat down with the Daily Wildcat to discuss their stances on issues and explain why they should be ASUA president. Following the primary elections, the field will be narrowed to two candidates.

of everyone involved. Between 1,500 and 2,000 volunteers will be helping to run the festival. “It’s truly a team effort to put something on this size … [with] everyone working together as one team,” Kopach said. Planning for the book festival included parking, risk management, accessibility and sustainability. Kopach said the planning committee is working with several entities on campus, such as Parking and Transportation Services, the University of Arizona Police Department and the Disability Resource Center. Some of Kopach’s specific goals for the setup of this year’s festival is to include more ramps for accessibility purposes, as

Daily Wildcat: What’s your stance on the 2.5 percent convenience fee added for Bursar’s payments? Taylor Ashton: What frustrates me the most is that the students weren’t consulted. These are the kinds of conversations that student voice needs to be in on. This is a prime example of why we need to be doing that. One of my big goals is developing those relationships … with the administration. Issac Ortega: I think there is a lot of confusion going around the fee. I think that people automatically assume that 2.5 percent fee increase is bad. The explanation [the Bursar’s Office] gave is very broad, and I don’t think it’s necessarily right to put this cost on students’ shoulder to pay this increasing cost. I think that if you’re charging students more, then you should have some tangible way to show for it. It doesn’t really hold the university operations accountable.

CHRIS TRUMBLE asks the class if what structural concepts they can identify in the full scale structure designed by Ali Dowd, Emily Cole and Koami Fedy (not pictured). Their structure was able to support over 10,000 pounds of force.

Trumble emphasized the importance of giving his students multiple attempts to craft a structure to hold up under the pressure. “If students are expected to learn, they must be given the opportunity to explore and experiment,” Trumble said. “They must also be given the opportunity to improve.” Each iteration of the project has the same process and concept, but the repetition allows students to identify the shortcomings in their early structures and create one that has resolved the issues. The three stages have different objectives and focus on encouraging students’ growth: The first iteration revolves

around concept, the second deals with specificity and by the third iteration, the goal is for students to have built a structure that is efficient. According to Roch, a successful structure can withstand around 6,000 pounds per square inch, but he added that there’s no requirement for how much force the structures can handle. “It’s not like whoever does the most force is the best,” Roch said. “It’s just whether or not you were able to resolve the forces and your machine makes sense.” The class is driven by Trumble’s

HOROSCOPES Today’s Birthday (03/03/14). Prosperity comes with time-tested methods and creative collaboration this year. Domestic bliss occupies you until August, when service, work and health take the spotlight. Launch bold initiatives after 7/20. Young people inspire you to pursue fun and passion. This strengthens your heart (and can be quite profitable). Spirituality and romance uplift, especially over summer. Focus on love. To get the advantage, check the day’s rating: 10 is the easiest day, 0 the most challenging. Aries (March 21-April 19) — Today is a 7 — There’s no room for padding. Choose your words carefully. Meditation leads to a brilliant insight. Let your partner handle arrangements. Keep your surprise a secret. Step carefully and avoid a disappointment. Gather valuable information. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Today is a 5 — Don’t try a new trick now. An amazing development requires steady feet. Someone makes sure you have what you need. Take time to let your mind wander. The pressure on you eases soon. Rest and relax. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Today is a 5 — Hear from an unusual point of view. Keep talking until you reach a compromise, for a pleasant surprise. Figure out what you want to accomplish first. Someone who seems dumb is actually brilliant. Listen openly. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Today is a 5 — You know exactly where your work will take you now. Upgrade your technology. Adventure beckons. Become fully involved. Follow through, then you can relax. A brilliant suggestion or idea could postpone chores. Your credit rating’s going up. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Today is a 6 — Suddenly your thoughts come together. Consider relevant theories. Don’t advertise your winnings. Find out how much you really have. Provide verbal leadership. Put all your ideas on the list. Save a bunch on household items.

Ahva Sadeghi: I think that it’s a bit ridiculous. There’s already a petition out, and I definitely support that petition against the convenience fee. Students paying their tuition shouldn’t be charged a convenience fee. You’re already paying your tuition. Should a smoking ban be implemented on the UA campus? TA: I would support what the students as a whole support. Personally, I think [the ban] would be fine. Based on the polling, I think there has been a pretty good response in agreement with the ban. If the issue does come up again, and I think it will, then we’re going to have to capture how students are feeling. IO: ASUA’s sole responsibility is to echo the student voice. Personally, I’ve been affected by tobacco usage. I have family members with emphysema and who have been affected by tobacco usage. On my personal experiences, I would like to support a tobacco ban, but it is about representing the students and what they believe. I think that a lot of statistics show that a majority would like a tobacco ban. AS: I am definitely strongly in support of [the ban]. My father is a radiation oncologist and he does cancer research. … I know how harmful smoking can be, especially secondhand smoke. I think that’s an important

initiative and [Stephanie Kha, Student Health Advocacy Committee director,] expressed that there is a really strong backing for it. Should the Graduate and Professional Student Council be the sole representative of graduate students? TA: I definitely understand where they’re coming from. I’ve worked really closely with [GPSC President] Zach Brooks this year, and I know that graduate students are facing different issues than we are. My two main concerns are, first, that our main mission is to serve, engage and empower all students, and I hold true to that. The second one is what I think has been missing from the dialogue is the fact that there’s undergraduate students that are fitting the mold of a graduate student. Instead of creating that major split, I think collaboration is the better way to go. IO: I don’t think that GPSC being the sole representative of graduate students alone would be a good thing. I think the way to solve [representation issues] is not division, but more collaboration. We need more communication and figure [out] what it is that graduate students need so we can merge the message together. AS: I think that is very important. Although I think that graduate students and undergraduates should be involved together, I do think they are their own component. Graduate students come from different parts of the U.S. and the world. They have different interest rates and different policies that affect them.


Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Today is a 6 — Start with an intellectual connection. Listen to an expert you admire and learn a new angle or technique. Don’t make assumptions. Put it to the test. Be careful not to break things. Provide well for family. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) — Today is a 6 — You gain insight about a work issue, but don’t know how to solve the problem yet. There’s a possibility for error. Talk over what you’re learning. Get advice from partners. Create an optimistic view. Use imagination. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) — Today is a 7 — Don’t get over-impressed with your greatness. Nourish your inner child with a sense of humor and humility. Do a good job at work. Have fun with it. Invest in your infrastructure and equipment. Advancement could seem sudden. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) — Today is a 5 — Controversy arises, draped in chaos. Confront authority. Get answers in private. A change in the game surprises. Try new tactics. Friends think you’re brilliant. Consider sentiments when engaging in reorganization or new structures. A party ensues. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Today is a 5 — Prepare to do the backstage research. Do what you promised. Everyone wants to be at your house. Ask them to help with dishes. Spend wisely. Take care with details. Relax without worry. It works out. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) — Today is a 5 — Postpone social activities and extensive travel for a bit. Take care of business now. You’re especially convincing, and a project needs your talents. Follow a hunch … the crazier the better. Later, results can beat expectations. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) — Today is a 7 — You’re good at solving puzzles. You may disagree with a critic. Power your way through tasks. Heed a partner’s considerations. Go out on a limb. Don’t get stopped by past failures. The response rewards.

well as incorporating more recycling. “We want to make sure everyone is on the same page … and we represent the University of Arizona,” Kopach said. Marisa Lopez, a psychology sophomore, who works for the UofA Bookstore, said the presence of the festival should not inconvenience anyone because it is during spring break, so many students will be out of town. Lopez said the bookstore staff members have different roles in helping out at the festival. Tasks include dressing up as characters from books, helping set up tents and doing crowd

It’s imperative that [ASUA and GPSC] be two different mechanisms that work together. Graduate students need to be engaged, but their powers and authority need to be established separately. So, they should be separate identities. Why do you think you should be ASUA president? TA: On top of that passion for the U of A, I’ve got the experiences and the qualifications — and the institutional knowledge of [how] our student government runs and how our administration is running and of the big issues facing U of A students to do a good job. You can’t walk in just not knowing how it’s going. You just have to know. IO: I’ve never had the easy path to college. My parents never went to college, but they knew that was the one thing I was going to do different from them. They were so proud when my acceptance letter came in the mail. The ability to face all that adversity and just being here [at the UA] is an accomplishment. I definitely don’t take this for granted, so if I get the opportunity, I won’t waste it. AS: I have a strong professional edge to represent our university as far as all the internships I’ve had. Also, the fact that I’m not within ASUA, but I am definitely one with the university through all the clubs that I’ve started. So, I think that I can bring in new ideas and a lot of experience.

However, Stephanie Salazar, a public management and policy sophomore who helped with tabling for the Associated Students of the University of Arizona, said the festival’s setup near the SUMC “does get to be obtrusive.” Kopach said the anticipated turnout for the 2014 Tucson Festival of Books is around 125,000 visitors. “It’s a great feel for the city of Tucson and the University of Arizona to be a part of,” Kopach said.

Academy Awards: Not short, but sweet BY ALEX GUYTON

The Daily Wildcat


gainst a tower of crimson roses flanked by golden lights, the 86th Academy Awards were held in the Dolby Theatre on Sunday night. The ceremony was a vanilla experience. Jennifer Lawrence tripped before the ceremony even started, in case you were wondering. Ellen DeGeneres reprised her role from 2007 as host for the ceremony. Her opening monologue saw her outfitted in some sort of suit and ascot combination that looked as if she were vying for a role in an off-Broadway production of a very fashion-forward “A Christmas Carol.” DeGeneres, as per her typical style, gently poked fun at the nominees and wasn’t afraid to roll out the occasional pun. However, whether this was the fault of DeGeneres, the writers or both, there was an incredible amount of dead time and filler. Yes, I know there is a lot of filler for the Oscars, but this was on another level. Ellen found herself amongst the audience a lot, just chatting with people here and there. She even delivered pizza, and in the pièce de résistance of marketing and social media, spent several minutes taking a celebrity-filled selfie with her Samsung Galaxy phone that quickly became one of the most retweeted tweets ever. If I interrupted this article to name-drop the Samsung Galaxy a few more times, it would only

be in keeping with the spirit of the Oscars. The duo of Jared Leto and Matthew McConaughey, hailing from “Dallas Buyers Club,” claimed Best Actor in a Supporting Role and Best Actor in a Leading Role. Leto looked dapper in a white tuxedo and red bow tie, and McConaughey delivered one of the best speeches of the night. “There are three things that I need

in each day,” McConaughey said. “Something to look up to, something to look forward to and someone to chase.” The something to look up to is God, the something to look forward to is his family and the someone to chase is himself in 10 years. He is aiming to always better himself. Lupita Nyong’o rightfully claimed Best Actress in a Supporting Role over Jennifer Lawrence and the rest of the

nominees. Her performance in “12 Years a Slave” was raw and honest, and Jennifer Lawrence really doesn’t need a second statue at an age where she can barely legally rent a car. Cate Blanchett, in the most unsurprising win of an unsurprising Oscars, took home Best Actress in a Leading Role for her role in the Woody Allen-directed “Blue Jasmine.” Halfway through the ceremony,

“Gravity” went home with a whopping seven awards — a good portion of them being technical awards. “12 Years A Slave,” however, won the night’s top honor for Best Picture, along with Nyong’o’s award and Best Adapted Screenplay. A staggering number of familiar names and faces graced the stage for “In Memoriam.” Shirley Temple Black, James Gandolfini, Paul Walker, Harold Ramis, Roger Ebert and Phillip Seymour Hoffman were among the dearly departed. Sarah Jones, a 27-year-old crew member that was tragically killed on a film set in February, was also acknowledged. True to form, the ceremony went ludicrously over-schedule. The schedule on my DVR had the awards slated for 6:30-9:30 p.m., and at 9:20 p.m., there were still six awards left to go. At a few minutes to 10 p.m., Steve McQueen concluded his acceptance speech for “12 Years a Slave” and was literally jumping up and down, fist-pumping and hugging whoever he could. Not a single person’s award speech had to be bleeped out, there were no controversial or surprising winners and there was not one moment that will have people talking. The ceremony was nice and sweet, but a touch of controversy could liven up the affair next year. — Follow Alex Guyton @TDWildcatFilm

LORI HUNT plays scientist Rosalind Franklin in Live Theatre Workshop’s production of “Photograph 51,” which is based on the real-life events surrounding the discovery of DNA’s double-helix structure.

The last scene is of Wilkins trying to reinvent a memory of him and Franklin seeing a production of “A Winter’s Tale,” but unlike the characters of William Shakespeare’s play, Wilkins is left alone with the everlasting regret of lost love. These dramatic liberties are likely deviations from the actual events that took place in Franklin’s lab, but “Photograph 51” is still an educational story about the embittered battles over the mysterious molecules that make up our biology.

Crick and James Watson. Based on the actual scientists who took all of the credit for determining DNA’s structure in their 1962 Nobel Prize speech, Crick and Watson are crafted as self-centered plagiarists. Actor Nick Price takes Watson’s villainy one step too far. His exaggerated gestures make the character seem cartoonish, and he reduces the three-dimensionality of the reallife Watson to a Disney caricature. Despite Price’s distracting performance, the rest of the ensemble nicely embraces the banter and wit of Ziegler’s text. An unexpected love triangle even arises between Franklin and two of her colleagues, one of whom is Maurice Wilkins, the man now blamed for leaking Franklin’s discovery to Watson and Crick. By the end of the play, Ziegler has cleverly shifted the focus from Franklin to Wilkins. It’s an attempt to highlight the guilt Wilkins must bear, and again to reinforce the loneliness of this environment of sterile telescopes and test tubes.

Operation Streamline tries, does not succeed BY Maura Higgs The Daily Wildcat


here’s no way to grow up in Arizona without hearing about illegal immigration. It’s talked about everywhere: at the dinner table, in the news, in school. But I was never really taught what happens when people who cross the border illegally get caught. It’s known as Operation Streamline. It was created in 2005 by the Bush administration to criminally charge people who cross the border illegally in order to help enforce the “zero tolerance policy.” For first-time offenders, the sentence could be up to six months in jail with a misdemeanor. After their time is served, they’re deported. People who return after deportation could go to jail for up to 20 years. Operation Streamline is not working. It denies people basic rights promised by our laws while draining resources that could be better allocated elsewhere. Defendants run through the whole trial system in 30 minutes. They are asked if they crossed the border on a certain date and if they want to plead guilty or have their case go to trial. They often don’t understand what they are being asked because of the language barrier. If they plead guilty, and most do because they believe it will get them out of jail sooner, then, as a group of 40 to 80 people, they are brought before a judge for their sentencing. They are put through so quickly, they don’t receive the full due process they are owed by the U.S. Constitution. They meet with their lawyers the day they go before a judge. When asked what their lawyer informed them about their rights, 40 percent said they were simply told to sign a deportation form and plead guilty. Jason Hannan, a Federal Public Defender who worked within the program, said in an appearance on “Dan Rathers Reports” that he feels like a puppet acting like a lawyer, just filling the role because people are required due process and the right to a lawyer. He says lawyers meet with four to six defendants at a time and only get a few minutes with them before being seen before the judge. While most of the accused are nonviolent, and many have crossed for the first time, their wrists and ankles are shackled the entire time. A study by the UA’s Center for Latin American Studies surveyed more than a thousand people who were deported and discovered that 42 percent are their family’s sole provider and 51 percent have family members who are U.S. citizens. With about half having families here, the U.S. is their home — maybe not by law, but in practice. Still, we are treating them like violent criminals, even though most of them aren’t. According to a policy brief from the University of California, Berkeley, Operation Streamline is distracting and tying up the courts, so fewer violent crimes are being prosecuted. Prosecutions of those entering the country illegally has increased by tens of thousands over the last decade, while drug prosecutions have decreased and alien smuggling prosecutions have barely increased. Not that the system is effective. The UA study found 56 percent of those deported planned on crossing the border again, with 25 percent planning on crossing again within the following week. Abraham Acosta, an associate professor in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese with research interests in border studies, finds problems with Operation Streamline. “Neither, of course, is this change in jurisdiction effective in any way, as people most likely to migrate to the U.S. will not have any advance warning of it,” he said, “nor is it ever effective to convert a mass of unlawful entrants into a class of jailed felons simply for being the former.” Hopefully, with a better understanding of the flaws of Operation Streamline, we can create a better program to treat immigration defendants like human beings; we ought to give them the right to due process they deserve instead of dehumanizing them, all while making the time to prosecute actually violent criminals. — Maura Higgs is a neuroscience and cognitive science sophomore.

Sweetening food labels While opponents of the change may scoff at its hefty immediate cost, a whopping $2 billion according to The Washington Post, the administration predicts that over the next 20 years, companies will see that cost offset by $20 billion to $30 billion in benefits. Although the results won’t be immediate, the creation of a system that makes it easy and efficient to make healthy choices is a long-term benefit for Americans. In a country where, according to the CDC, the annual cost of obesity in 2008 was $147 billion, it’s a wonder that such changes haven’t been implemented sooner. This isn’t just an overhaul of aesthetics; it’s an entirely new frontier for the food industry. The FDA must take public comments on these changes for 90 days, and manufacturing companies will have two years to implement the changes, according to CNN. Coupled with the increasing pressure on food companies to produce healthier and more desirable products from an increasingly health-conscious population, the changes will have to be massive. While health is often low on the priority list of overstressed and overworked college students, this is a national change we should all be paying close attention to. Within the span of a few years, this major victory for public health will become a reality. There is overwhelming evidence that the long-term benefits will be far greater than the initial costs. This overhaul is a massive step in the right direction for our wellbeing and longevity.

Your views Online comments From “Go Greek or go home?: ASUA dominated by Greek Life” (by Brittny Mejia, Feb. 27) ASUA should not be dominated by any one particular group, whether that be Greek Life or not. But there is a problem with ASUA being dominated by greek-affiliated members, those that can afford to be a part of Greek Life are white, middle-class students. This does not adequately address issues that minority and/or low-income students deal with and for that reason ignores certain realities. It is time to change up ASUA and to have a more diverse representation at UA. And I am not sure what is meant here by

“doing a good job”; that is very unclear. A good job for who? Important questions to address. — ckelly The reason Ahva Sadeghi is considered a “wild card” is not because she is not affiliated with Greek Life, it is because she has never held a position in the ASUA office and because of this, does not know how ASUA works. There are many people in ASUA that are not a part of Greek Life, both appointed and elected positions. A good candidate for any office should not be judged based off of which organizations they are or are not affiliated with; a good candidate should be someone who will do a good job and knows what the job they are applying for entails.

are things that ASUA already does (like the diversity coalition idea and monthly visits to the capitol), is currently working on (like her tuition freeze platform) or things her office actually does not oversee and has no part of (like her club platforms). — Anonymous If you know how to read, you would be able to understand that this story is clearly not endorsing anyone. It’s called using a source relevant to the issue that is being presented, which is that non-Greek Life candidates do have to work more to earn ASUA positions. Simple as that. Stop trying to create an issue that isn’t there. Well-written, well-researched story. — IGINATW ASUA is not run by Greek Life. Also, knowing that the student body is 15 percent greek shows that AT LEAST more than 1/10

members in ASUA are likely greek as well. ASUA, much like anything, is also a collaboration effort, and basing your vote on something so black and white is ridiculous. — ANONYMOUS Winning elections simply comes down to getting the most votes. If you have more connections, you will get more votes. Being in a greek organization connects to you a specific chapter (between 70 to 250 votes depending on the chapter) and a network of other greeks (thousands of other individuals). Greek Life is definitely one way to gain support and is a big outlet for votes, but being involved in ANY organization can fill this void. Ahva is involved in over 15 clubs on campus, so she will not have to “work harder” to network herself. — Anonymous

Police Beat BY Elizabeth Eaton The Daily Wildcat

‘Just give them the stuff, man’

Two UA students were cited for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia at 11:36 p.m. at the Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall on Feb. 22. A resident assistant contacted the University of Arizona Police Department when he received an anonymous tip that a resident of Arizona-Sonora and his friend were smoking marijuana in his room. The UAPD officer arrived on the scene and could clearly smell marijuana from the room. A resident answered the door when the officer knocked. The student had red, bleary eyes, appeared disoriented and had trouble talking coherently. The resident claimed that there was nothing illegal in his room, but said he didn’t want the officer to search through his belongings. When the officer asked him if he didn’t want to be searched because he had illegal objects in his room, the resident suspiciously glanced back at something in his room. The officer told the resident that he knew there was marijuana in the room because he could smell it. At that point, the resident’s friend told him, “Just give them the stuff, man.” The resident then went to the spot he had looked at when the officer asked him if he had anything illegal and retrieved a glass jar containing a green, leafy substance. The material tested positive for marijuana and weighed in at about 8.6 grams. The resident also dug out a glass bong that had been hidden behind a chair and gave it to the officer. The officer noticed that the friend also had bloodshot eyes when they were speaking. However, the resident and his friend refused to answer any questions when asked if they were smoking. The two were cited and diverted to the Dean of Students Office. The marijuana and bong were placed into evidence.

Leaky engineers

The Civil Engineering building flooded on Feb. 20 after a leak. A UAPD officer was signaled over to the building by a UA student. The student told the officer that there was extensive flooding inside the building, and there must be a leak somewhere. The officer called General Maintenance, then entered the building with the student to investigate. There was a large puddle in the middle of the lobby, and water was dripping down from the ceiling of the men’s bathroom. There was significant leakage in other sections of the second and first floor. General Maintenance arrived and was able to shut off the water that was causing the flooding.

March 5–18

Special Delivery

On Feb. 21, two U.S. Postal Inspection Service inspectors asked for assistance in regards to a package that was sent to a UA student. The USPIS inspectors contacted UAPD because they had intercepted a package addressed to a resident of Coronado Residence Hall containing about 4.5 pounds of marijuana. A UAPD officer and the inspectors were taken to the room occupied by the resident, but no one answered after knocking on the door. They began checking study rooms in search for the resident, and overheard a student talking to the resident on the phone. Although the student initially denied talking to the resident, he admitted to doing so when told that his resident assistant had heard him. The student then confessed to telling the resident that “cops were at his door.” He claimed that he had no knowledge of the package containing marijuana. At the time of this report, the officer and inspectors were unable to make contact with the suspect resident.

Seton Hall sweeps series with Arizona BY Rose Aly Valenzuela The Daily Wildcat

Arizona baseball endured a rough weekend, getting swept in its three-game series against Seton Hall. “It was a tough weekend,” head coach Andy Lopez said, “poorly coached weekend by me.” After having their Saturday game postponed due to rain, the Wildcats (6-4) played half of Saturday’s game on Sunday and the third game of the series started half an hour after on Sunday. Seton Hall took the second game of the series 4-2. Arizona tried to rally in the bottom of the ninth inning after junior left fielder Zach Gibbons was walked, but it fell short. Sophomore Cody Hamlin (2-1) took the loss in the second game of the series. Arizona’s pitching struggled once more, with eight pitching changes during the final game of the series. Starting pitcher, freshman Morgan Earman, gave up three runs on a total of 31 pitches before sophomore Cody Moffett was called to the mound. Moffett pitched a total of 26 pitches and gave up one run before junior Nathan Bannister relieved

him in the top of the second inning. Bannister didn’t stop Seton Hall’s offense either. Another bullpen call was made, inserting sophomore Xavier Borde with one out and runners on first and second when the Pirates had the 6-0 lead. Borde had two strikeouts for the game on a total of 39 pitches, allowing two runs.

Junior Tyler Parmenter entered in the fifth inning after Borde allowed the two runs. Earman (1-1) took the loss. Of the eight pitchers that the Wildcats deployed, Lopez was pleased with Parmenter and Borde the most. “I felt good with my performance for the most part,” Parmenter said. “I don’t think


it’s really a problem with [the pitchers]. We just need to go out there and get it done in the game, throw strikes and compete on the mound.” Aside from all the pitching changes, there were also some defensive changes for the Wildcats. The infield consisted of the young players like freshman Michael Hoard on first base, sophomore Cody Ramer on second, sophomore Kevin Newman for shortstop and freshman Bobby Dalbec for third baseman for the game after junior Trent Gilbert was removed from second base. “[Trent] needs a little rest,” Lopez said. “Things are wearing down a little bit, so we gave him a rest.” The pitching wasn’t the only problem for Arizona. “We’re not executing and we’re not capitalizing when we have runners in scoring positions,” sophomore Scott Kingery said. Arizona returns to action on Tuesday when it hosts Long Beach State at 6 p.m. at Hi Corbett Field.

UTA head coach and former Arizona softball standout Kristie Fox. “Unfortunately, we can’t control Mother Nature, and that’s just kind of the way it happened,” UA head coach Mike Candrea said. “I feel bad because I wanted to see Kristie’s team play against us, and I wanted Kellie and Kristie to play each other.” With Saturday’s games cancelled, Friday was the only other chance the Wildcats had to take the field this weekend. Arizona beat Longwood 8-0 in five innings and Valparaiso 9-1 in five innings in a doubleheader. Fox continued her hot start to the season by batting .429 over the weekend with two home runs and five runs batted in. For the season, Fox is leading the team in hits, home runs, RBIs and slugging percentage. “I’m just going to keep going up there and taking my hacks,” Fox said. “The game is paying me back right now, but you never know what’s going to happen next.” Including Fox, the top half of the batting order has been incredibly productive so far this season and is a reason why Arizona is off to its best start since the 2010 season. The first four hitters have contributed 70 of the team’s 171 hits, 70 of the team’s 158 runs, 18 of the team’s 28 home runs and 71 of the team’s 144 runs batted in. That kind of production is why Arizona keeps scoring at a

rate of 8.3 runs per game. The Wildcats have already scored 10 or more runs six times this season, compared to last season when the team scored more than 10 runs only nine times. The Wildcats have used that run-scoring ability to extend their run-rule streak to six games; 13 of Arizona’s 19 games have ended prematurely due to the eight run-rule. “You take [offense] when you can,” Candrea said. “One thing about this game: It’s a roller coaster. … You just have to keep your standards

high, and the key is keeping those standards high and preparation. If you prepare every day with a big game mentality, then good things are going to happen. You let your guard down and anybody can play with you.” Looking forward, Arizona takes on Ball State in a doubleheader on Tuesday at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. The Wildcats look to win both games and match their season-best 10-game winning streak. — Follow Roberto Payne @HouseofPayne555

The Arizona women’s swimming and diving team finished fifth at the Pac12 Conference Championships at the Weyerhaeuser King County Aquatic Center in Federal Way, Wash. By the end of day four, California won the team championship with 1552.5 points. The Wildcats amassed 933.5 points. The meet was highlighted by a win in the 200-yard freestyle relay as the team of Bonnie Brandon, Margo Geer, Alana Pazevic and Grace Finnegan finished in 1:27.76. Arizona teams also earned a pair of fourth-place finishes in the 200y medley and 800y freestyle relays. Individually, the Wildcats had a number of strong performances. Brandon placed second in the 500y freestyle event, bested only by four-time Olympic gold medalist Missy Franklin. After placing first in the 200y freestyle, Brandon rounded out her weekend with a second-place finish in the 200y backstroke. As the defending NCAA champion, Geer was dethroned in the 100y freestyle by Cal’s Franklin, who secured a Pac12 meet record with a time of 47.17. Geer took third in the 100y freestyle and second in the 50y event. Senior Ashley Evans raced her way to a couple top-five finishes, placing fourth in the 200y butterfly and fifth in the 100y fly. Other notable performances include a

second-place finish in the 1650y freestyle by freshman Tjasa Oder, who had never swam the event in competition, and a third-place finish in the 100y breaststroke by senior Eve Sarris. As for the diving team, sophomore Rafael Quintero ended the weekend with a second-place finish in the platform competition with 424.95 points on the men’s side. Quintero also took second in the 1-meter event. Finishing just behind Stanford’s Stephanie Phipps, freshman Michal Bower earned second place in the women’s 1-meter competition. The men’s swimming team will now head to Washington for its Pac-12 meet, which starts Wednesday. Junior Kevin Cordes, who looks to defend his conference title in the 100y and 200y breaststroke, will lead the way. The Wildcat women will return to action on March 20 for the NCAA Women’s Swimming and Diving Championships, held in Minneapolis, Minn.

What are some of the benefits and side-effects of the birth control pill?

A. Since it was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1960, “the pill” remains one of the safest and most effective forms of birth control available. In fact, oral contraceptives (OCs) may very well be the most studied medication ever produced, leaving no doubt that they offer overwhelmingly more health benefits than risks. Today, there are more than 40 types of OCs available, all of which contain estrogen, progestin or some combination of the two. In general, the pill is considered very safe for most in good health, but like any drug, it does have side effects and associated risks. Consider the following benefits and risks of OCs with your health care provider before deciding if they are a good option for you. Benefits: • 92-98% effective in preventing pregnancy • Decreases menstrual bleeding and cramping • Lessens premenstrual symptoms

• Makes periods more regular • May prevent ovarian and uterine cancer • Improves bone density • Lowers the risk of ovarian cysts • May improve acne Risks: • No protection against sexually transmitted infections (STIs) or HIV • Small risk of heart attack and stroke, which increases among smokers • Can cause blood clots in rare cases • Can worsen severe diabetes • Taking other medications can reduce the effectiveness of the pill A wide range of contraceptives are available at the UA Campus Health Service, including the pill.

Arizona wins Pac-12 title


WISCONSIN HOLDS OFF PENN STATE No. 14 Wisconsin 71 Penn State 66



FRESHMAN FORWARD Aaron Gordon dunks the ball during the first half of Arizona’s 79-66 victory over Stanford in McKale Center on Sunday. Gordon led the game with a total of 19 points.


Freshman forward Aaron Gordon compiled his eighth double-double of the season to lead Arizona men’s basketball to a 79-66 victory over Stanford, clinching the UA’s 13th regular season Pac-12 title. The No. 3 Wildcats (27-2, 14-2 Pac-12 Conference) have won 21 consecutive home games and did not fall to an opponent this season in McKale Center. Arizona won its first regular-season Pac12 championship since 2010-11, outright, with two games to go in the regular season. Gordon, who is from San Jose, Calif., shot with over 60 percent accuracy from the field, grabbed a career-high 15 rebounds and was four points shy of his season-high of 23 (18-10, 9-7). Head coach Sean Miller has now won two regular season conference championships over the past four

seasons while holding undefeated records at home. The last time Miller led the UA to an undefeated home season, he was named Pac-12 coach of the year. The Wildcats made it to the Elite Eight, falling two points short of the Final Four. Miller said that Gordon is really starting to hit his stride right now and said he was impressed at his ability to effectively clear the glass. He said he’s pleased to see Gordon break out of his slump and succeed. In the Bay Area trip about a month ago, Gordon had a disappointing homecoming, as he shot 2-for-10 from the field at Stanford and 4-for14 at California. Arizona beat the Cardinal by just three points on The Farm and lost to the Golden Bears on the same trip, but beat Cal 87-59 last week. “We’re a much better team right now than we would have been three weeks ago, in part because of how hard we’ve worked at it and some of

the things that have changed inside of our team,” Miller said. “Like Aaron Gordon, for example: He had 19 points and 15 rebounds. There was a point in time a month ago — as good as he is and as talented as he is — he wasn’t on the glass and wasn’t as dominant as he was today.” Junior point guard T.J. McConnell has gathered 26 assists and only committed three turnovers over the Wildcats’ last four games. His assistto-turnover ratio is 2.96 this season. On Sunday, he scored 14 points and had four assists and two rebounds. “We’re making the extra passes,” McConnell said when asked about the team’s performance over the past few games. “We’re also starting to hit outside shots and Kaleb [Tarczewski] is dominating down low. Everybody is playing well right now.” Senior forward Josh Huestis led the Cardinal’s offensive threat and scored a game-high 22 points and pulled down 12 defensive rebounds.


“I was really proud [of] his effort,” Stanford head coach Johnny Dawkins said. “Josh did a great job rebounding and scoring for us. Our guys tried to make plays defensively, [but] those guys are just really quick. They beat us to the 50-50 balls and hurt us with offensive rebounds.” Arizona recorded 40 rebounds compared to Stanford’s 31 and outdid the Cardinal on the offensive glass, clearing eight more offensive rebounds than its opponent. The Wildcats won the UA’s 30th conference championship, but some said they’re still not satisfied. “The season isn’t over yet,” junior guard Nick Johnson said. “We still have two games left, and right now, we’re trying to play for a seed and for ourselves. We want to go down in Arizona history as one of the best teams ever.”

One net down, two to Wildcats go for Pac-12 champs continue to dominate


The Daily Wildcat




rizona cutting down the net after Sunday night’s win in McKale Center was a symbol of its conference authority. Ten feet high on a ladder, with about 14,545 fans still packed inside the arena, head coach Sean Miller and every Wildcat player cut off a piece of nylon and raised it into the air in celebration of the difficult climb they had just conquered. The climb to the top was a little more terrifying and unfamiliar to some. “I had to teach T.J. [McConnell],” junior guard Nick Johnson said with a grin. “He didn’t know where or how to cut the net.” Arizona (27-2, 14-2 Pac-12 Conference) claimed the 2013-14 Pac-12 conference title outright with two games remaining on its schedule. When the final horn sounded, McConnell, a junior transfer from mid-major Duquesne, slammed the ball into the ground, pointed at the Wildcat fans and yelled while Johnson came up from behind and gave him a bear hug. This is the second regular season Pac-12 title for fifth-year Arizona head coach Miller. The first was in 2010-11. Miller said there were many similarities between this year’s title and the previous one: Both came on Senior Day and both had the same feeling to them. Unlike McConnell, Miller has experienced cutting down the nets. During Miller’s freshman and sophomore playing years at Pittsburgh in 1987 and 1988, the then-point guard claimed two regular season Big East conference championships. That didn’t mean he wasn’t emotional when he stood high on the fence. “I could have cried or yelled,”

JUNIOR GUARD T.J. McConnell cuts off a piece of the net after Arizona’s 79-66 win over Stanford in McKale on Sunday. This is the second time head coach Sean Miller has gone undefeated at home at the UA and won the conference title on Senior Day.

Miller said. “Winning the regular season championship is not something that we take lightly.” After an offseason of speculation and hype, when the games finally began on Nov. 8, a regular season conference title was almost an afterthought for Wildcat followers. But for Arizona, it was the first of many targets, a goal that could not be skipped. “This was one of our three goals we set this year,” Johnson said. “They were winning the regular season [title], the Pac-12 tournament and the National Championship.” Despite a loaded roster of highly touted freshmen and athletic returning players, Arizona had to get better every game and every practice, something Miller calls “honoring the process.” Following Sunday’s win, Miller said he is seeing this team practice and play harder than it ever has in

the past — practicing and playing harder even after starting forward Brandon Ashley went down with a season ending foot injury on Feb. 1, and especially in the past two weeks since losing to ASU on Feb. 14. The move to add more depth on this year’s Wildcat team might have been the most important move of the season. While most teams would have folded after losing a starter like Ashley, Arizona reinvented itself, and after a slight skid in early February, the Wildcats were able to get back on track and capture their first goal before March Madness. If things go according to plan, this will be just the first net they cut down this season. “This is one of the best feelings I’ve ever had,” McConnell said. — Follow Luke Della @LukeDella

Despite heavy rain causing two games to be cancelled, the No. 10 Arizona softball team still stayed hot. The UA went 3-0 during the Wildcat Invitational and extended its winning streak to eight games, its second-longest winning streak of the season. Most recently, Arizona (18-1) took the field on Sunday against Indiana in a 9-1 victory in five innings for the Wildcats. Arizona’s sixth straight mercy rule win ties a school record. Arizona’s redshirt senior starting pitcher Kenzie Fowler struggled off of the bat and had the bases loaded in her first inning. Fowler managed to yield only one run in that first inning en route to four innings pitched, three strikeouts and four hits allowed. Luckily for Fowler, the Arizona offense quickly regained the lead on a first inning, two-run home run from junior catcher Chelsea Goodacre. The Wildcats added seven more runs on the game to defeat the Hoosiers. “That’s what makes pitching for this team so much easier,” Fowler said. “I know that we’re going to put runners in scoring position and get runners in motion. I know we don’t have to freak out if an opposing team scores first. I know that this offense can put me back in the game.” The surprise news of the weekend came when Arizona’s scheduled games on Saturday against TexasArlington and Iowa had to be cancelled due to rain. Both games were postponed several times throughout the day before finally being cancelled during the afternoon. In all, three Saturday games were cancelled and one was postponed because of the rain. The cancelled game against TexasArlington would have presented a rare competition between current Wildcat Kellie Fox and her sister,
